Rahul Kohli From Supergirl Wants To Star In A Fables/Wolf Among Us Adaptation

Rahul Kohli, best known for his appearances on Supergirl and Midnight Mass, wants to portray Bigby Wolf in a Fables/The Wolf Among Us adaptation.

Rahul Kohli has indicated an interest in playing Bigby Wolf, the protagonist of The Wolf Among Us, in a prospective live-action version of the Fables property. Kohli reacted to a tweet earlier this week that claimed the actor might play the Big Bad Wolf in Fables.


"I'd be lying if I claimed that playing Bigby Wolf wasn't on my bucket list," he wrote regarding the role. Kohli went on to say that he became interested in adopting the character after playing Telltale Games' Fables prequel The Wolf Among Us, which he "LOVED." Bigby Wolf, the grizzled sheriff of Fabletown, a New York neighborhood populated by characters from fairy tales and folklore, made his debut in Fables #1 in July 2002.

Fables, published by DC's Vertigo label, was successful enough to warrant many offshoot comics until its finale in July 2015. Several proposed series adaptations were in the works, including a now-canceled Fables film by Moon Knight head writer Jeremy Slater.


The only successful Fables adaptation was the choose-your-own-adventure game The Wolf Among Us, which was set two decades before the events of the comic book series. Despite its technological constraints, the game gained critical praise throughout its episodic release from 2013 to 2014. Telltale Games revealed plans for a Season 2 of The Wolf Among Us in 2017. However, the project appears to have been shelved after Telltale Games went bankrupt in 2018.

After acquiring Telltale's assets, LCG Entertainment resurrected the game studio the next year. The Wolf Among Us 2 was formally revealed during the 2019 Game Awards, with a 2023 release date. Kohli rose to prominence after appearing in The CW's iZombie, Supergirl, and Netflix's The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass, as well as recurrent parts in Rooster Teeth's Funhaus material. Kohli explained the significance of portraying Sheriff Hassan in Midnight Mass in September 2021. "For many years, the Sheriff position in movie and television has been one of the most iconic American heroes, and it has existed for years," Kohli remarked at the time.
